Excuse me if I don't understand the scenario but, are you sure that monit is 
the rigth tool for this task?

This "restart procedure" that the daemon needs, is associated with a
failure condition of the daemon, to be managed by monit?

(Looks like a faulty daemon)

Anyway, you are free to define the stop/start monit programs, maybe you can
write two scripts for the tasks
- /home/adam/adam-stop: performs a '/etc/init.d/crazyd restart'
- /home/adam/adam-start: does nothing

Or maybe you can use a rule like
... then exec '/home/adam/'
